    I will be in New York at the end of March and would be grateful for some recommendations on bars, quality restaurants and disco dancing clubs.

    there's a good bar right at the top (north end) of union square. it's in the middle of the square by the park, just over the road from a large bookshop, in an old stone building with colonnades. the name's something to do with red or russia maybe?

      When are you going? And which days? The club editor at Time Out's a mate.

      There are a few things that have just closed, like Halcyon in Brooklyn. But then there are three big clubs that have just opened one of which, Crobar, is doing an after-hours party (4am onwards) on Sunday mornings run by John Davies who used to do Body & Soul.

      Best place for brunch (esp. on a Sunday):
      The Coffee Shop, Union Square. You might have to queue, but it's worth it. Good for star spotting, too. Malcolm McLaren was there last time I was over.

      If you need record shops, let me know. I'll think of some groovy places to eat.

          You'll get all 3 here! If you contact Lee beforehand & take a box of records with you, you may well get free grub for a DJ set! Maybe

            Cheers Col Wolfe, looks like an interesting place.

            Anymore quality restuarants, bars and discos? Is Body&amp;Soul still going? Last time I went, about 6 years ago, I caught some good Desco shows.

              Body &amp; Soul&#39;s finished, but François is doing a Monday night party at (I think) Cielo: a dub night.

                  As my trip to NY is coming up soon, I thought I&#39;d stick this to the top and try and get some more info on places to check for drinking, eating and disco dancing. I won&#39;t be digging in the crates but I hope to be digging into some top class nosh so any recommendations on quality restaurants would be appreciated.

                  Thanks for all the replies I have received so far.

                  Hope everyone had a good weekend.
